So at NAB Sony made Catalyst a subscription only bit of software, and some folks were told that 13 would the last Vegas. I use Sony Movie Studio Suite which is very powerful but has not had a real upgrade in 2 year, making me wonder if the Vegas/Studio combination are both end of life products (EOL). It's hard to image an organization as video focused as Sony not having a current consumer NLE. As I see it if Movie studio and Vegas are not continuing (I was just going to order Vegas Edit before I saw the post about Vegas being EOL) hen its time to move on. Also the Catalyst forums are very much like the Adobe forums when they switched to subscription for their products. And of course the QT issue has raised additional issues in the NLE world. All of my videos are short projects or stock 30 second clips. So if Studio and Vegas is EOL, it seems my choices are ($300 or less): 1. Resolve (free version) 2. Premier Elements 3. PowerDirector Suite Anything I've missed? Anyone have used both Elements and PowerDirector (seems a lot more powerful and you get a sound editor and color grading system). If so what is your choice. Still like to hear from those who only used one of the two. Resolve needs a slightly better video card (I only have 1 gig of memory on mine) but I will evaluate - I would just not like to spend $1K on the software if I need something in the full version. Thanks.
